In 1980, while still in his senior year at the University of Denver, Ginsburg founded Intertech Plastics. Intertech is a custom injection molding business, manufacturing products for the consumer, packaging, industrial and medical device markets. The company employs nearly 200 people out of two facilities and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition to his business, Noel is the proud husband to Leslie Ginsburg and father of their children, Corey Ginsburg who works for Intertech Plastics and Ali Ginsburg who is a personal trainer and body sculpting competitor in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Throughout his career, Ginsburg has been active in many community organizations, and was the founding chair of the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance (CAMA).

In addition, Ginsburg is a member of the State Economic Development Commission and the Colorado Workforce Development Council, a board member of the Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, chair of the Denver Public Schools College and Career Pathways council, and was appointed by Governor Hickenlooper to lead the Business Experiential Learning (BEL) Commission for the State of Colorado.

Along with his wife Leslie, Ginsburg sponsored 42 inner-city children in the first class of “Dreamers” in the Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation. Their commitment continued through the children’s graduation from high school and beyond, spanning over 10 years and resulting in a graduation rate nine times the neighborhood average.
